Oceans again

With a sudden deluge of Jacque Cousteau movies and World Ocean day coming up, here are a few more articles that have popped up lately on our world oceans.

First up, this article (one of many) that came out yesterday regarding the acidicity of our oceans entitled “Climate Deal Must Cover Acid Oceans, World Scientists Urge”¬† at Environment News Service.

If that doesn’t do it for you, here are two more that showed up a couple of months ago. They are “Climate Change: Acid Oceans Transform Marine Life,¬† Says Study” at the Grist and “CO2 Makes the Ocean Extra Acidic” by Cat Lincoln at Green Daily.

For a little more gloom, we have “Plastic Bags a Major Problem for Marine Wildlife” by Lori Brown via Live Science and “Humanity¬† Bites Into Ocean Predators’ Lunch” at Science News.

Speaking of fish, I would be remiss if I forgot to mention a new film entitled “The End of the Line“, set to open on World Oceans Day (June 8th) courtesy of Siel Ju at the Mother Nature Network.

And while this may all be rather depressing, there are some bright spots. One Is “Dirty for Swain-The Filthy Campaign for Clean Oceans” by Sami Grover at Treehugger. Jacque Cousteau would be proud.
